The higher prices are a reflection on the various taxes levied in Europe.

I'm in my home country of Croatia every other year or so and a new M3 for example runs the equivalent of $180,000...

The prices on used cars are higher because the price of new cars is much higher.

The car costed around 53.000,- ($73000) over here in holland because of all the taxes, etc.

Cars are extremely expensive over here, like the fuel. A gallon costs about 6,23 ($8,50)! mad.gif

53.000 ??? What the actual f*ck!?

I hope you are saying this as if you bought the car brand new 15 or some years ago... but even in that case, 53.000 i nearly twice the price of what was a brand new 6gc worth. Not to mention it's an ST, which you can get for less than 2.000 now almost anywhere in EU...

Never heard about Holland having such taxes though... I heard about Singapore, where you pay almost twice the price of a car, but still... 53.000? biggrin.gif

Just a question... What's your price for registration. I'm wondering if it's as insane as my home country.

Over there it's 5% of the vehicles original price..... annually... lol

Had her just about 1 year now and added up all my receipts, not including oil changes or other fluids.
$2570.27 spent this year including 1755.77 to rebuild and swap in a new motor. add to that the $2000 I paid for the car and I'm at $4570.27 total.
I still need to spend about $400 in struts, mounts, end-links, that will be coming soon. But that's the only thing left that really needs to be taken care of.
$5,000 for a car that will be dependable for several years is well worth it to me. <3 smile.gif

I paid $3.5 for my 95 GT. 94k miles. Mint condition.
New Kumho Ecstasy 4x tire (all 4): $300
New Nrg Removable Steering wheel kit: $200 (steering wheel was a gift)
Used TRD Front strut tower bar: $210
New Eibach springs / KYB strut/ strut related components: $800
New ST sway bars: $260
New s2000 antenna, used 7th gen celi base:$40
New GT-4 rear strut tower bar: $220
New Racing Beat rear end links: $70
OEM replacement parts(maintenance), includes timing belt kit:$1500
New OEM style Vis CF hood: $650
New Poly Motor Mount inserts: $55
Used Kouki Taillights: $150
New clear courtesy light w/ Led's: $35
Lithium Ion battery (3lbs): $280
Didn't include labor since most of the work is done by me.

Planning to do a 1MZFE swap and lightweight wheels.
For fuel expenses click my Fuelly banner below.

Total: $8,270 in the car itself and parts.
With swap and wheel I'll be pushing it over 10k. Not bad considering I'll be faster and handle a lot better than those new $10-$20k cars. ;P
